So lets say there is a little airport with ATC and the take-off runway is 33 (just a random number). But to get to it you need to taxi down the runway and turn around. Do you request runway crossing or just request take-off?
Hi there! I recommend watching this video on back taxiing. :)
Thanks! I get it now
This is called Back Taxi
If there is active ATC, you only need to request departure (previously named T/0). ATC will give you the back taxi command when there is no traffic around and you will be able to roll down the runway at a reasonable speed.
Note that if the controller only gives you a Take-off clearance without the back taxi command, you are still allowed to do so, for more info see 3.2.3 on the ATC Manual
